"This is a legit football country." 🤩
It's official — Canada is going to the World Cup! Perhaps one of the biggest moments in Canadian sports history happened on March 27 and the reactions from players, fans and coaches are absolutely incredible.
Canada's national soccer team defeated Jamaica on Sunday, which means that Canada qualifies for the FIFA World Cup for only the second time in their history. This hasn't happened since 1986 when the tournament was held in Mexico.
The game, which took place at BMO Field in Toronto, ended with a score of 4-0 for Canada and prompted some electrifying reactions.
As soon as the game ended, Davies can be seen bursting into tears and falling to the ground. It's really hard not to feel part of his excitement and happiness watching his reaction.
The reaction of the crowd watching the game at BMO field was also intense. As soon as the game ended, everyone leapt to their feet. Chants of "Canada!" started while the players celebrated and hugged.
It's hard not to feel proud of Canadian soccer watching clips like this!
